The awards ceremony, which featured 15 categories such as Researcher of the Year and Tech for Good, showcased the impressive talent across the Cambridge region. Ninety companies were nominated, underscoring the area's extensive contributions to science and technology. This recognition of Alchemie highlights the company's role in advancing sustainable solutions within the textile dyeing and finishing industry.

The Cleantech Company of the Year award, sponsored by Woodfines Solicitors, acknowledges a decade of Alchemie’s dedication to creating more sustainable solutions for the textile industry. Nathan Taylor-Allkins, Partner at Woodfines Solicitors, stated,

"We are delighted to present this award to Alchemie Technology for their significant contributions toward transforming the textile industry into a more sustainable sector. The nominees for the Cleantech award were, as ever, extremely strong but it was Alchemie’s innovation and, importantly, real world implementation of their proprietary technology, which has the potential to vastly improve one of the biggest polluting industries globally, which impressed tremendously. The Company’s passion for creating positive environmental change shone through in their application. Alchemie are thoroughly deserving winners”.

Earlier this year, Alchemie launched its low carbon digital textile dyeing production system, Endeavourβ„’, and inaugurated its first demonstration and production facility in Taiwan. Alchemie’s digital liquid application solution significantly reduces energy consumption by up to 85% and decreases wastewater by over 95%, marking a substantial advancement in sustainable textile manufacturing.

The global fashion industry, a colossal entity, is responsible for a staggering 2.1 billion metric tons of carbon emissions, accounting for over 3% of the world's total. Amid this daunting reality, Alchemie is set to revolutionise the sector with its groundbreaking, award-winning technology. Alchemie is thrilled to spearhead innovation and sustainability, paving the way for a greener future in fashion.
